Oxmoor House
These well-seasoned cashews are sweet, salty and crunchy…and oh-so snackable! Everybody raves about them. I often make 10 to 12 batches for gifts during the holiday season…maybe even more!


Makes about 3 1/2 cups

Recipe from

Gooseberry Patch


1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
2 (9 3/4-oz.) cans salted cashews
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper


Whisk together egg white and water in a large bowl. Add cashews; toss to coat. Transfer to a colander; drain for 2 minutes. In a separate bowl, combine sugar and spices; add cashews and toss to coat. Arrange in a single layer on a greased 15"x10" jelly-roll pan. Bake, uncovered, at 250 degrees for 1 1/4 hours, stirring once. Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
